Christmas Cuties

This hasn't happened in a very long time! Two posts from me in the same day! Can't quite believe it myself actually but here is the proof, a second card and this time its a Christmas card!

And the reason for the second post, is that I was lucky enough to be asked by Lisa at the Christmas With The Cuties if I'd like to guest design.  Clearly the answer was yes and the card below was made following their current theme of,
Holly
So, initially my card was going to just feature holly, but in a last minute switch this Christmas Cutie was purchased from Wee Stamps as I thought she filled the challenge better!


Papers are oldies from a few years back, I think by Fancy Pants but to be honest I'm not sure!

Challenges;
CRAFT - Christmas
A Snowflakes Promise - Anything Goes
Season's Greetings - Anything Goes
The Holly & The Ivy - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Cute Christmas
CHCC - Christmas for a child

Get Well Wishes

Today it's Wynn at the helm of the Ooh La La challenge and she has set our theme as

Get Well Wishes

It's always lovely to receive a hand made card - but even more lovely when you are under the weather.



So for my card I used this image from The Shawn Jenkins Collection with matching papers.  This time the sentiment is off a Pink Gem topper sheet - it matched the card and was looking for a home!

Challenges;
Crafts & Me - Things with wings
4 Crafty Chicks - Butterflies
Creative Knockouts - Lots of Layers
Fab n Funky - In the garden
Paper Shelter - Use a sentiment

Into The Woods

Almost the end of March, soon there will be leaves on the trees again and Winter will be behind us.  I made this card however last month, on a wet weekend when the trees were bare and Summer a long way off!

What isn't a long way off however is the next challenge over at MAWTT, chosen by Terrie and she's asking for projects relating to the theme...

Into The Woods.

Now initially I was going to do a woodland creature on my card, but as I rummaged through my real stamps, I came upon this stamp again - it's very simple but I do love it!


So the ink dusters and distress inks came out along with Papermania Capsule Collection papers, and the end result is above!

Challenges;
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Cardz 4 Guys - In the country

Cupcake Creams

Another Monday and another new challenge over at Ooh La La.  This time it's Julie who is hosting and she has chosen a favourite theme of mine...

Embossing

It's up to you what kind of embossing you do - feel free to get out those powders and heat gun, but as I'm using CD files, I have gone to the aid of my bigshot and embossing folders!



So this time it's files from the Shawn Jenkins CD - I chose Cupcake Creams - love the colours on these files and I thought they coordinated perfectly with kraft card.

So it's a simple design, the image is on a daisy embossed kraft bed and the card is finished off with a ribbon, a die cut flower and some buttons.

Challenges;
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
